What is Body Shaming? Body shaming is the act of criticizing a person's shape or size. Discriminating against someone over their body type is wrong. 

Why is body shaming wrong? Judging someone for their physical appearance is considered bullying. You never really know what someone is going through. Some words and phrases can cause extreme emotional pain. Body shaming and fat shaming can cause stress and affect a person's well being. This can have a negative impact on someone's self esteem. Just because someone's body looks a certain way, doesn't give them the right to ridicule someone else's. There is a difference between constructive criticism and being flat out rude. 

Usually when a person body shames someone, It's because they have low self esteem. They are not happy with themselves and criticize others to make themselves feel better. When you judge someone by their appearance, it doesn't define them, it defines you! Projecting your insecurities onto someone else is never okay. It's time to take a step back. Take a long, hard look at yourself and work on your inner issues to heal those problems from within. 

The more you point out someone else's flaws, the more you highlight your own. 
Before you judge someone, look in the mirror and start with yourself.
